The 1931 Bentley 8 Litre was the second year of production for this luxury car model. It was largely similar to the previous year’s model, with only minor updates and improvements.
One significant change was the introduction of a new four-speed gearbox to replace the three-speed transmission used in the 1930 model. This helped to improve the car’s overall performance and made it more suitable for high-speed touring.
Other updates included a new rear axle ratio and modified engine timing, which provided slightly better fuel economy. The suspension was also adjusted to provide a smoother ride, and the brakes were improved for better stopping power.
The 1931 Bentley 8 Litre was available in a range of body styles, including limousine, saloon, and tourer. These were built by a variety of coachbuilders, including Park Ward, Mulliner, and Hooper.
